CNL, a developer of Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) software, announced the appointment of Darren Chalmers-Stevens as Professional Services Manager. Chalmers-Stevens is a well respected name in the global security industry, with 10 years of management experience. His primary responsibility will be to oversee all delivery of client projects which use CNL's PSIM software.
Chalmers-Stevens has had significant exposure to all facets of the security industry, both logical and physical. This fits in well with the industry's transition into converged solutions, which use a combination of logical and physical systems to provide complete enterprise wide security.
Chalmers-Stevens' most recent role was DVS Business Manager and Lead Physical Security Consultant for IBM's Security & Privacy business across UKISA, where he advised enterprise customers on strategy, priorities and integration methods for best practice within IBM's Smarter Planet initiative. He was responsible for creating, delivering, managing and growing new opportunities for IBM's DVS group.
He has had senior security management roles at CNL and VERITAS/Symantec. With Chalmers-Stevens' breadth of experience and depth of understanding of both IT and security management, he is uniquely qualified to ensure partners and their customers receive the optimal solutions for their evolving security needs.
Keith Bloodworth, CEO at CNL, said, “We continue to build a world-class team around IPSecurityCenter and I am delighted to have Darren back with us again. Our PSIM projects have continued to grow significantly, both in their scale and their locations. We now have projects on four continents, and are adding to this on a monthly basis. Only last month, CNL took a major order for what is probably the world's largest PSIM implementation.”
This latest addition to CNL is part of a rapid growth plan to provide representation of CNL's software throughout major markets. The company recently added new partners, new senior US positions and committed to several international security shows.
